Damon's inching his way to .200.

You know, I think Matt LaPorta could become a really great hitter if he'd just pull the ball more often.

In all seriousness, does anyone see anything more than the "all arms" swing from LaPorta this year?

I know it's early days, but he still isn't using his bottom half.

Let's hope Perez doesn't make tonight as interesting as last night.

He could use every part of his body if he wanted too but it wont matter if he doesnt stop swinging at every breaking ball 5 feet off the plate

Hell of a catch. Let's hope there's no drama in the bottom half here.

That's Brantley's ball. Never once said a word.

Great job by the offense. One hit allowed by the pen in 4 innings.

Scoreboard watch: Toronto up 2-0.
